Thanks to the UK’s prestigious auction houses, the boys at EVO Magazine are having a great time these days, getting to drive some of the world’s most iconic – not to mention expensive – classic car. So after sampling a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, they now get to have a go in 1981 Lamborghini Countach.
This is the same Lamborghini Countach we reported on earlier, going under the hammer at a Silverstone Auctions event with an estimate of between £200,000 and £250,000. The yellow color makes this particular example look more modern than an 80s car, which some may like while others would count it as a negative.
Lamborghini Countach is often credited as the world’s first proper supercar, the original pin-up machine, the one that started it all. And it sort of is, if we don’t take into account the fact that it Lamborghini’s other amazing creation, the Miura, that invented the whole boutique super car niche. The Countach is still a pretty impressive thing to have though, and a safe investment, too.
